Wine smoke
"Larmes du Desert," the tears of the desert. That fits. Atelier des Ors has succeeded here in creating a pleasant, almost unspectacularly secluded frankincense flatterer that lays itself thinly over the skin, seduces, soothes and exotically evokes thoughts of pyramids, Bedouin villages and warm desert sand.

"Larmes du Desert" really reminds me of the desert milestones of Tauer, I can only agree with some of the previous speakers. The theme seems to smell the same in the minds of perfumers. Only it is interpreted somewhat flatter and more uncomplicated here. More wearable say friends, more boring say enemies. The truth is somewhere in between. It's a cute incense burner, no big fuss. Very linear, very tasty, very chaste. But it doesn't smoke. Patchouli will take over with time. Citric notes are not often put into the base. Since you don't notice anything of them here, you know again why. The presentation of Atelier des Ors probably doesn't match any of their scents better than this maharajah season ticket.

Flacon: golden beauty
Sillage: more discreet than you think. Quiet, almost. Cuddle in Sahara sand.
Shelf life: 8 hours the mouth

Conclusion: a golden desert breath of tears and longings. You've smelled something like that before. But it is still a high-quality dream from 1000 and one night

Smooth Incense
Thanks to a blogger friend, I was able to test a few Atelier des Ors offerings(thank you!). Here are my thoughts on Larmes du Désert:

As its name indicates, Larmes du Désert is all about resins. Olibanum, myrrh, labdanum and benzoin all make an appearance, but most of the time, they're seamlessly interwoven into each other and merely show a certain facet from time to time.

The fragrance opens with the bracingly cool and stony smoke of olibanum, flankered by the musty sizzles of myrrh and the aromatic woody freshness of cypress. However, Larmes du Désert does not feel as aloof or austere as Avignon or L'Eau Trois for example. Because there is this mild balsamic and fleshly warmth of labdanum and cinnamon-tinged benzoin that soften the overall harshness of incense. There is also a discreet plum-like sweetness lurking in the background, although I don't know where it stems from. As a result, Larmes du Désert is like a fantasy painting of desert, where one can admire the tawny landscape but doesn't have to endure the hardship of an actual desert.

Like most Atelier des Ors perfumes, Larmes du Désert is largely linear during its 10-hour longevity, although the sillage is rather soft except for the moderately projecting first hour.

While I personally prefer an incense fragrance with a more stark constrast between its coldness and warmth, Larmes du Désert is nontheless very enjoyable and solid. Its strength actually comes from the unification of the cold incense and warm amber and its smooth execution. If you happen to be looking for an elegant and verstaile incense fragrance, Larmes du Désert might well worth a try.

Fine incense in which the woody note briefly becomes papery, but is soon loosened and balanced out by citric notes.+3
